The latest Knit Picks collection

Finally another opportunity to share some finished projects! The latest Knit Picks collection that I was able to design for was released recently. It is called Petite Presents and features 30 projects that use small amounts of yarn.

I have two patterns in this collection. The first pattern is the ZigZag Mittens. They are knit in superwash wool, so they are soft and washable. There are lots of options for color customization with this project. You could knit them in dark, rich colors or neutrals for a completely different look. They come in three sizes to fit children through adults. I gave a pair of the smallest size to my niece for Christmas.

The second pattern is for Weather Mug Cozies. They are super simple to knit and use duplicate stitch to add the designs. There is also room for customization with this project. You could make a cozy with sun on one side and rain on the other. It would also be fun to use a deep red or green for the snowflake cozy to make them holiday themed.

I've been super busy designing and writing several different patterns, so it's nice to take a quick break and share some finished products! I can't wait to share some of the patterns that I'm working on now.
